Zumasys Release jBASE 5.7

jBASE's powerful NoSQL-like architecture allows your existing PICK programs to run natively on the underlying operating system. Unlike older MultiValue databases, there is no pseudo code or VME (virtual machine environment), making it instantly familiar to modern developers and allowing it to easily connect to other databases, web services, and the latest SaaS applications through rich API-integration.

jBASE 5.7 gives you even more flexibility to design your applications around your business needs and not the capabilities of your database.

Benefit from our latest features including:

Dynamic Objects

Create objects on the fly and program in a language that looks and files like JavaScript.

Affectionately known as "JabbaScript"—jBASE 5.7 marries the language of MultiValue (BASIC) with a modern language similar to JavaScript, giving developers the best of both worlds. One of the main benefit of Dynamic Object is that it makes BASIC a true object-oriented language. Also, since the jBASE compiler produces native code, operations on dynamic objects are blazingly fast.

Dynamic Files

Improve performance and flexibility with automated file sizing.

As the name implies, the new files are dynamic, built from the ground up to continually work optimally as updates are made. They aren't like traditional MultiValue files which are hashed files that get re-sized manually or in the background. Dynamic Files reduce administrative overhead and boost your application's performance.


Eliminate the necessity of using environment variables to configure jBASE.

jBASE profiles completely eliminate the use of environment variables to configure jBASE. Profiles extend the jBASE configuration allowing new settings which have never been available before - including a new "zero-conf" mode that allows jBASE to run with zero external configuration. With jBASE 5.7, you can continue to use your traditional environment variables, the powerful new profiles, or a combination of the two for maximum flexibility and customization.

RESTful Services

Integrate your business application with the web.
